In-laws, am I right? Is there anything worse than being stuck at your significant other’s parents house amid family turmoil? Turns out, yes! How much worse? Picture a Meet the Parents and The Belko Experiment crossover, directed by David Cronenberg. Dark Sky Films has dropped the first trailer for the upcoming sci-fi horror film Await Further Instructions. Check out the footage below!

From the Press Release:

Take the techno-paranoia of Black Mirror, add the intergalactic body horror of John Carpenter’s THE THING, adapt them into a VHS board game, and wrap it all up in a bitingly satirical Christmas-movie package, and what do you get? Await Further Instructions from British director Johnny Kevorkian and co-starring David Bradley of Game Of Thrones, Doctor Who, and Harry Potter fame.  It’ll be in theaters and on VOD October 5th from Dark Sky Films. 
It’s Christmas Day and the Milgram family wake to find a mysterious black substance surrounding their house. Something monumental is clearly happening right outside their door, but what exactly – an industrial accident, a terrorist attack, nuclear war? Descending into terrified arguments, they turn on the television, desperate for any information. On screen a message glows ominously: ‘Stay Indoors and Await Further Instructions‘. As the television exerts  an ever more sinister grip, their paranoia escalates into bloody carnage.  

 
A powder keg of throat-grabbing intensity and mind-bending body horror, AWAIT FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS is an unmissable tour-de-force from rising star filmmaker Johnny Kevorkian  and the BAFTA-nominated producer of God’s Own Country.
